WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. — Members of the global coarse grains, ethanol and co-products markets will gather at Export Exchange 2016, scheduled for Oct. 24-27, 2016, in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.
This biennial event, which is co-sponsored by the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), aims to facilitate connections that will build and sustain business in the grain and ethanol trade for years to come.
“We are expecting more than 200 international buyers of coarse grains, co-products and ethanol to attend Export Exchange 2016 along with an estimated 300 producers and agribusiness representatives, making this the industry’s premiere opportunity to network with your key customers," said USGC Chairman Alan Tiemann.
In addition to networking opportunities, Export Exchange 2016 general sessions will address critical issues facing U.S. agricultural exports, offering the customers and sellers in attendance an increased awareness of the benefits of U.S. corn, distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS), ethanol and other products.
“The global demand for DDGS has increased significantly over the last several years, and Export Exchange provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to bring buyers and sellers together with the goal of promoting continued growth in the international market,” said Bob Dinneen, president and chief executive officer of the RFA.
More information will be distributed in the coming months to members of the grains industries and will be available online at www.exportexchange.org or on social media using the hashtag #ExEx16.
